How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff

But they keep sheep and goats and cats and dogs and chickens for decoration said osbert in a slightly sneery way and im getting the feeling about him that hes the one cousin who reminds me of people i knew in new york city. Before i tell you what happened then, i have to tell you about the house, which is practically indescribable if the only sort of houses youve lived in before are apartments in new york city. And when i woke up i thought how strange it was to be lying in someone elses bed thousands of miles from home surrounded by grayish light and a weird kind of quiet that you never get in new york city where the traffic keeps you company in a constant buzzy way day and night.

For a very long time (46 years, to be precise), this was the main reason i knew for certain that i couldnt be a writer. And when i look relieved he does too and says im edmond. He threw my bag in the back, though more like pushed it in, because it was pretty heavy, and then said get in cousin daisy, and there was nothing else i could think of to do so i got in.

Edmond and piper and isaac and osbert, and jet and gin the black and white dogs, and a bunch of cats all went into the kitchen first and sat down at a wooden table and someone made cups of tea and then they all stared at me like i was something interesting theyd ordered from a zoo and asked me lots of questions in a much more polite way than would ever happen in new york, where kids would pretty much wait for some grown-up to come in all fake-cheerful and put cookies on a plate and make you say your names. And for a minute i was so glad i was 15 and from new york city because even though i havent actually seen it all, i have in fact seen more than plenty, and i have one of the best oh yeah, this is so much what i usually do kind of faces of anyone in my crowd. If she was making even the slightest attempt to address centuries of bad press for stepmothers, she scored a big fat zero. The photographs are out of date, but she looked like the type who would wear a big necklace and flat shoes, and maybe some kind of narrow dress in black or gray.

    Theres still no aunt penn but edmond introduces me to the rest of my cousins, who are called isaac and osbert and piper, which i wont even begin to comment on. Kevin macdonald horribly beautifula potent exploration of the devastating effect of war on normal life my name is elizabeth but no ones ever called me that. You drove here yourself? You drove here yourself? Yeah well and im the duchess of panamas private secretary.

    What its like to work on a presidential campaign and. Later when i get a chance to look around the house i find out the inside is much more jumbled up than the outside with funny corridors that dont seem to lead anywhere and tiny bedrooms with slanty ceilings hidden away at the top of stairs. There was a fair amount of arguing and talking at lunch and except for talking to me she didnt get too involved but kind of observed, and overall id have to say that the main feeling you got from her was that she was a little distracted, i suppose because of the work she was doing.

    I fell asleep in the jeep because it was a long way to get to their house and watching the highway go by always makes me want to close my eyes. After a while i was feeling pretty shivery and told piper that i had to lie down for a little while and she frowned at me and said you need to eat something because you look too thin and i said christ piper dont you start its only jetlag, and she looked hurt but jesus, that old broken record is one i dont need to hear from people i hardly even know. Which was strange too, because i hadnt said anything out loud. After looking at me for a few seconds more she put her hand up very gently and pushed the hair off my face in a way that for some reason made me feel incredibly sad and then she said in a regretful grave voice that she was sorry but she had to give a lecture in oslo at the end of the week on the imminent threat of war and had work to do so would i please excuse her? She would only be gone a few days in oslo and the children would take good care of me.
